WHY UNDERTAKER IS DOING APPEARANCES OUTSIDE WWE, TWO NEW WWE TOY LINES ANNOUNCED, REVIVAL VS. GABLE & ROODE DO IT AGAIN AND MORE WWE NEWS

For those who have asked, The Undertaker has the ability to take outside signing appearances now, which is why he is doing the Starrcast event as well as appearances in the UK for Inside the Ropes.  He knows he can command top dollar for the appearances (and he's right) and will likely be adding additional appearances down the line.  He's still associated with WWE and has not left the company.  

Total Divas filmed a birthday party for Natalya's mother yesterday in Florida with Carmella, Charly Caruso, Titus O'Neill, Naomi and others in attendance.

The 2019 International Toy Fair in New York City gets officially underway today, so expect some WWE action figure and toy announcements. 

Alpha Toys announced a new series of inflatable WWE toys, including a Triple H sledgehammer, a giant microphone, inflatable fists and a fire extinguisher.  We have their complete press release below. 

Eagle Moss' Hero Collectibles has already announced a new 5 inch figurine statue line titled the WWE Championship Collection, featuring polyresin 1/16 scale WWE figurines, each of which paired with a 16-page magazine.  The line will include wrestlers from different eras of the company with Triple H, Steve Austin, Braun Strowman, The Rock, Charlotte Flair, AJ Styles, Finn Balor, Roman Reigns, Sasha Banks, John Cena and The Undertaker featured at the Toy Fair.

Our friends at www.WrestlingFigs.com will have a lot of photos and other material from Toy Fair starting today.

We are seeking results from last night's Raw event in Edinbuirg, Texas, which we are told had yet another amazing Revival vs. Bobby Roode & Chad Gable match that went about 35 minutes.

WWE's Raw brand has a live event in Laredo, Texas today at Sames Auto Arena.  Smackdown will be running Alexandria, LA at the Rapides Coliseum with WWE Champion Daniel Bryan vs. AJ Styles vs. Jeff Hardy and Smackdown Women's Champion Asuka vs. Charlotte Flair locally advertised.  We are seeking live reports from those events as well.   Thanks in advance to anyone who can assist!
